Fraxel Resurfacing
 
Fraxel skin treatment is the latest form of laser skin rejuvenation that promises the dramatic results of ablative
treatments without the serious side eects of traditional skin resurfacing. It's just one of the latest nonsurgical
cosmetic options now available, which continue to grow in popularity. Last year similar noninvasiveprocedures increased by more than 50 percent. e Fraxel laser involves resurfacing only 1720- percent of the skin's
surface at a time so there's no major redness or recovery time needed. Fraxel's edge is that it is more gentle to
the skin. It can produce dramatic improvements to aging and sun damaged skin. e results include
elimination of unwanted pigment and blemishes, improvement in texture, ne lines as well as deep lines, scars
and stretch marks. It is unlike anything else on the market. Instead of removing the entire outer layer of skin,
as in previous methods, the Fraxel beam is split up and heats microscopic columns of tissue (leaving healthy
tissuein between). It basically creates a grid of small wounds on the skin (invisible to the naked eye). Aer three
to ve treatments from 1 – 4 weeks apart, the results are similar to traditional ablative resurfacing. e typical
Fraxel patient has wrinkles, brown spots, wrinkles and redness. Unlike aggressive laser resurfacing which can
be used only on the face, Fraxel can be used anywhere on the body -- back, neck, upper chest and hands. It also
has excellent eects on acne scarring and is one of the only eective treatments for stretch marks.
e treatment itself takes about 20 minutes, with about 40 minutes needed for a local anaesthetic to numb the
skin. e sensation during treatment is of a pricking sensation on the face, and feeling of a sunburn for
approximately 1 – 2 hours aer the session. Recovery is immediate, with any redness subsiding shortly aer
the treatment. ere can be a period of skin peeling similar to that of a sunburn.
Fraxel treatments should only be given by a board certied plastic surgeon or dermatologist with special
training in fractional laser resurfacing. Results can be dramatic, but it is important to ensure that the machine
settings are appropriate and safe, to have the benet of no side eects and yet have eective treatment sessions

Smart Xide: “Dot erapy”
 
Fractional Co2 Resurfacing
In the past 1012- years, we have seen the emergence of many laser technologies promising much but delivering
fair to sometimes good results. e emergence of FDA-approved fractional Co2 resurfacing is a breath of fresh
air in an already crowded market.
Fractional Co2 resurfacing is a major advance in the ght against aging skin (wrinkles), pigmentation
problems, acne and loose skin — giving the recipient a “refreshed” look without the down time of traditional
Co2 resurfacing.
Co2 laser light heats and removes the topmost layers of skin. With the “fractional” technology, some skin is
spared (small dots) to allow for faster healing without the original down time of conventional Co2 lasers (the
gold standard for wrinkle reduction). e trade-o is that multiple treatments may be needed based on the
fraction of healed skin le behind. is procedure is based on patient preference.
e skin is le baby-so with decreased lines above the lips, crows’ feet, cheeks, neck, and chest. With
experience, the lower lids and upper lids may also be tightened without surgery. Large pores, melasma, and
poor skin tone can all be tightened with now minimal down time (three to four days, also known as a “weekend
li”). Patients have had the procedure on Friday and been back to work Monday with makeup and no
problems.
 
PRP INJECTIONS FOR HAIR LOSS
 
PRP has been proven in the past to assist and speed up so tissue healing from sports injury as well as wounds,
ulcers or burns. It is believe that the use of PRP may be benecial for hair transplant gra survival as well as
possibly waking up dormant or inactive hair follicle cells which can assist in prevention and even stimulation
of hair growth in both male and female patients suering from hair loss. e process is similar for facial
injection of PRP and the injection or dermaroller is used on the scalp only in the thinning or balding areas.
PRP is also used in combination with oral medication, topical creams or serums, mesotherapy and Low Level
Laser Hair growth therapy for a combined eect to maximize results.
 
IV GLUTATHIONE FOR SKIN BRIGHTENING AND REJUVENATION
 
For patients who want more extreme skin lightening and brightening we oer IV drip of an anti oxidant known
as Glutathione. We have developed the Skin Brightening IV, which includes glutathione, vitamin C and other
vitamins/minerals. Not only is this treatment eective for most people, it is also safe. e Skin Brightening
IV glutathione is a good alternative to skin bleaching creams, which can damage, scar, iname, discolour .
is safe and natural treatment involves principally the use of intravenous (IV) vitamins including glutathione.
Our Intravenous Glutathione Skin Whitening Treatment can lighten your skin evenly. Glutathione is
administered via IV and is able to deposit evenly throughout the body. Glutathione will help remove the
oxidative damaged cells (which cause skin to darken) and lighten your skin naturally, safely, evenly and in a
healthy manner.

HIFU (HIGH INTENSITY FOCUSED ULTRASOUND)
 
HIFU is a medical procedure that applies high focused ultrasound energy to locally heat an area that will result
with liing and tightening of the skin. It is considered the GOLD standard for skin tightening. It is a non
invasive procedure, it is used on both the upper and lower face as well as jawline and neck.
- Reducing ne lines and wrinkles
Skin liing and tightening
- Eyebrow and forehead liing
- Neck and jawline denition
- Delaying and slowing the process of aging to the area treated
Unlike lasers that penetrate from the outside, HIFU by passes the skin and delivers targeted energy to the area
the doctor wants to treat. It penetrates to the deep layers and structural tissues and muscles to stimulate
tightening and collagen formation. Some result is evident immediately with gradual improvement over the
next few months.
e procedure takes approximately 15 minutes, and patients sit for approximately 45 minutes before with
topical anaesthetic cream. e procdure itself is virtually painless there is just some mild pressure from the
handpiece and some warm feeling to the face or neck. ere is no down time – mild swelling or redness will
disappear almost immediately and patients can return to work immediately.
e results can last over a year however skin continues to age and it is recommended to repeat the HIFU
session yearly to maintain and prevent progression.
 
THREAD LIFT
 
e thread Li is a procedure which involves elevating dierent parts of the face using special threads without
having to make surgical incisions as with a classic face li. read Li may be marketed under a variety of
names including, APTOS®read Li, Contour Li, Silk Li™, Feather Li™ or Happy Li.
ere are two main types of threads or sutures used: Free oating cogged or barbed threads which do not need
to be suspended in order to hold the li; and smooth or suspension threads which need to be anchored to a
stable structure of the face or scalp. is procedure is best suited to patients with mild to moderate sagging of
facial tissues, usually those in their mid-thirties to ies. read Li is usually performed using a local
anaesthetic. Recovery is generally quick. e plastic surgeon or dermatologist can assess if you would be a good
candidate for threadli. Results are not as drastic as a surgical faceli and results do not last as long as traditional
faceli. However for younger patients who want a slight improvement and liing eect it is a good option.
 
LASER VAGINAL REJUVENATION (LVR)
 
Vaginal relaxation refers to the stretching of the pelvic oor supports (connective tissue, ligaments and
muscles) that takes place as a result of time, aging, childbirth, genetics, lifestyle etc). Pregnancy and more
importantly labour and vaginal delivery are the factors most oen associated with the loss of sensation and
damage to the female pelvic oor. It not only results in changes in sensation during intercourse but may have
an adverse impact on urinary and lower bowel function (urinary incontinence and problems with emptying
the bowels).
Many women suer from their symptoms for many years before seeking help because the symptoms are oen
embarrassing and because there is a lack of information . Now, there is a non surgical approach to tighten the
vagina aer childbirth to help improve all aspects of the female anatomy. Laser vaginal rejuvenation is
• a non-surgical, no downtime solution to the symptoms related to vaginal atrophy or soening
• a solution for mild and moderate stress and mixed incontinence
• photo thermal tightening of urethral and anterior bladder wall region
• incision less, minimally invasive treatment for vaginal problems
• no anesthesia needed
• walk-in/walk-out procedure
• safe, quick and easy
• high success rate and patient satisfaction
e procedure itself takes only about 15 minutes and there is no need for anaesthetic as the procedure is pain
free. Approximately three sessions are recommended but many patients are satised with one or two sessions
as well.
With the laser, you are only required to abstain from sexual intercourse for 2448- hours. Daily activities can be
resumed immediately aer nishing the treatment, without any feeling of discomfort, or any need for
medications.
 
MOLE ASSESSMENT AND REMOVAL
 
More than 1 in 3 melanoma skin cancers appear in those under age 55 and it is the second most common cancer in those aged 1534-. If a mole changes its appearance, or if a new mark appears on the skin that looks
like a mole, this may represent malignant melanoma and should be reported to your doctor for urgent mole
assessment. e surgical removal of malignant melanoma at an early stage in its development can prevent its
spread and cure the condition.
Almost everyone has moles and some people have quite a lot. It can be dicult to know whether a mole has
changed or whether a mark on your skin is new. is is a particular problem for skin sites that are hard to keep
an eye on, for instance your back.
Our experienced dermatologists can examine and assess your moles. We can also provide a state of the art
computer-assisted mole mapping and digital photo-dermoscopy surveillance service. is is particularly useful
for people who are known to have an increased risk of the development of malignant melanoma.
Moles that have no risk of developing cancer can also be removed for cosmetic reasons. Moles can be removed
by either our state of the art CO2 laser or by a minor surgical procedure that can be performed in minutes.
Visit our dermatologists today to explain to you which option is best for you.
 
PIERCING
 
Umbilical or “belly button” piercing has become as common as ear piercing, however, due to the risk of
infection and increased risk of bleeding it is recommended to be performed by a licensed doctor. e
procedure involves a tiny injection of local anesthetic so that you will not feel any discomfort. e piercing
takes a few seconds and the stud which must be titanium or stainless steel must stay in place 6 weeks.
Cleansing and rotation of the stud will be explained by the doctor performing the piercing. We have male and
female doctors available for this procedure.
 
DIMPLE CREATION
 
A natural dimple is usually formed when there is a small defect in the cheek musculature (most oen the
buccinator muscle). e skin overlying this small defect is stuck down to the underlying connective tissue and
creates a dimple in the skin with facial animation (smiling).
Dimple creation surgery can simulate this naturally occurring process. To create a dimple, a small painless
incision is made in the inside of your cheek. ere is no incision or scar on the outside skin. A small
absorbable suture is passed through the inside of the cheek and catches the undersurface of the skin where the
dimple is desired. When this suture is tied it causes a dimpling in the overlying skin. At rst there is a dimple
present even without smiling, but aer several days, or sometimes a few weeks, the dimple is only present while smiling or moving the face. e scarring between the inner skin and muscle will cause a permanent dimple
even aer the suture is absorbed.
Dimple creation surgery can be done on any type or size cheek, although some cheeks are probably better
candidates than others. You can decide where the dimples will be, or you can have the doctor decide with you
where the most optimal place for the dimples should be on your face.
Dimple creation surgery can be done in our center with nothing more than local anesthesia. You will be awake
and comfortable during the entire dimple surgery process. e dimple surgery takes about 20 minutes to
perform and you can go home right away aer the procedure.
